Custom-Tailored Solar Panel Installation for Warehouses

Installing solar panels on warehouse roofs isn’t only feasible – it’s highly advisable. Warehouses, especially those that store refrigeration goods, take up a lot of energy. This means they have very specific energy requirements. Luckily, our team at Eco Happy knows and can provide tailored solar energy solutions.

A bespoke solar solution is exactly what you need to tackle high energy tariffs and take advantage of underutilised roof space. Just think of all the financial benefits and energy efficiency your warehouse stands to gain.

The Costs of Solar Panels for Warehouses

The cost of solar panels varies according to the size of the installation, the types of panels used, and the complexity of the job. 

In some cases, this could mean having to fork out quite a bit of cash. However, warehouses can offset these costs in a number of ways, like tax credits, rebates, and grants. You could even sell the generated electricity if it’s in a surplus via the Smart Export Guarantee.
